Reagan, a possible RepublV Gun Control Legislation Causes Rift WASHINGTON (AP) - Amid a duel of words over gun control legislation, Sen, Robert P. Grif fin of Michigan proposed today a Senate investigation of Penta gon policy toward the National Rifle Association. Tbe Republican asked tbe Senate Armed Services Commit tee to find out why the NRA has become "the exclusive sales agent" for surplus Army rifles. His request coincided with Ini tial Senate committee action on President Johnson's hotly con tested firearms control bill. That measure, bitterly opposed by the NRA, was ap proved Wednesday by the Senate Juvenile delinquency sub committee. The 5 to 4 decision was only a preliminary skirmish in the gun control battle, which will be waged later in the full Judiciary Committee and in the Senate it self. The Johnson bill would bar in terstate mail-order firearms sales, along with over- the-counter handgun sales to out-of-state purchasers. It also would bar importation of mili tary surplus handguns and re- quired licensing of all firearms dealers, importers and manu facturers. The inquiry Griffin seeks does not involve the fire arms control issue. It stems from the report of some 400 De-I troit policemen that they are Joining the NRA so they can purchase surplus carbine rifles for possible riot control use. "Only the NRA and its affllU ated units are eligible to pur chase surplus arms and ammu nition," Griffin complained. "In effect, the government has made the National Rifle Asso elation its exclusive sales agent for surplus rifles. "I see no reason why law en-l forcement agencies should be required to go through the NRA to fulfill a defense function," he said. "I was astonished to learn mat members of the Detroit Po-I lice Department cannot pur-j chase surplus carbines unless they first join and pay dues to the National Rule Association. State and local law enforce-! ment agencies should be permit ted to purchase directly the Pentagon's surplus weapons, Griffin said. His speech was prepared for the Senate. YPSL Meeting Is Termed Unusual arrive la Colombia by chartered plane at 1 pjn. next Friday aft er speaking at Eureka College in Illinois, his alma mater. Sen. Griffith was asked to comment on a statement by Vice President Hubert Hum' phrey In Greenville during the vice president's two-day visit which concluded earlier Thurs day. Humphrey said he was opti mistic tbe Democratic presiden tial ticket will carry the state in 1968. "I don't believe there's any chance of that happening," Grif fith said. "I think the state is absolutely through with LBJ and HHH. "I believe that was made clear In the last election and in tbe next election it will be made even clearer." Grlfflth predicted that President Johnson "is going to have a health problem next year and not run for reelection-1 think the health problem may develop after polls show there is no chance for him to be elected."

Ambassa dor Arthur J. Goldberg's speech to- the U.N. General Assembly Thursday, but some said be was more conciliatory toward North Vietnam, and opinions varied on whether be was tougher on Is rael. Delegates that follow the Vietnamese problem said Goldberg seemed to indicate that the United States would stop bomb ing North Vietnam if Norm Vietnam would promise that meaningful negotiations defi nitely would follow. They re marked that this would be shift from last year, when be said the bombing would stop only on a promise of reciprocal de-escalation by North Vietnam, One Middle Eastern diplomat remarked mat Goldberg was "more conciliatory" this time in that "the stress was not on the necesssity for scaling down on the part of the North Vietnamese." A Western European dip lomat said that Goldberg seemed to have dropped UJS. insistence on such scaling down as a condition for cessation of the bombing. A long-time U.N. observer declared that, dealing with the Middle Eastern question, Gold berg was harder on Israel when he said "peace cannot be served if military success blinds member state to the fact that its neighbors have rights.1 A Syrian source praised Gold berg's statement to that effect.

Israel has Insisted on direct Arab-Israeli negotiations. But Ambassador Rashad Mourad, Arab League U.N. observers!- called Goldberg's speech "very disappointing." He said, "I think it lacked real, ly the will to treat things according to justice." Israeli Ambassador Gideon Rafael said he had "no reaction, especially" to the speech.
